Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup


3 super cozy slow cooker soups that'll warm you right up

There's nothing like a hearty bowl of homemade soup to warm up to after a long day — but no one said you have to spend all day making them. Using a slow cooker for your next soup day will make these no-fuss meals even easier. 

Here are three dinner-worthy recipes made in a slow cooker. 

Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup
Yes, this recipe does involve some time with a skillet, but it's well worth it: A rich stock and tender veggies with fall-apart chicken will make this recipe your new go-to for when you crave this classic soup. We use orzo as our noodle in this recipe for maximum noodle-to-soup ratio, but feel free to switch out your favorite pasta.

Slow Cooker She Crab Soup
There's not a roux in sight in this creamy, rich recipe — the secret is as simple as adding cracker crumbs and blending to get a silky smooth soup filled with lots and lots of crab meat. A sometimes pricey protein, look for claw meat for the best flavor for your dollar.

Slow Cooker Tomato Soup
This one-pot wonder is the perfect weeknight meal that involves just two steps in order to achieve ultimate winter comfort food nirvana. To round out your meal, try slicing up some crusty bread, lay a couple of slices of mozzarella on top and place in the oven on broil till nice and melty. Or you can always fire up a skillet for the perfect grilled cheese.
